Antigua and Barbuda, Antigua and Barbuda Travel Guide Last Updated: Dec 2021

Luxury travelers flock to Antigua and Barbuda as it has a long reputation as an upmarket destination. There is excellent scuba diving and snorkeling available off the east coast, but most of the resorts are on the sunset side of the island, and the most common activity is relaxing with maybe a bit of shopping thrown in. These islands also have some of the Caribbean’s finest beaches, with Antigua itself boasting 365 of them. This means finding an isolated beach for yourself is relatively easy.
